The Faculty of Law of the University of Ljubljana is one of the founding faculties of the University of Ljubljana and the oldest and largest law faculty in Slovenia. It was founded in 1919, and the first lecture was conducted by its first dean, Professor Leon Pitamic. Since its foundation, it has been educating experts in the field of law who have held prominent positions in Slovenian society and shaped the country’s legal environment. Today, the Faculty of Law in Ljubljana occupies renovated premises and provides a distinguished and creative academic setting for education at all levels.

The following research institutes, closely associated with academic work, operate within the framework of the Faculty: 

  • Economic Institute of the Faculty of Law
  • Institute of Labour
  • Institute of Public Administration
  • Institute of Criminology
  • Institute of Comparative Law 

In addition to the above institutes, the Institute of International Law and International Relations also operates as an organisational unit of the Faculty. 

In this motivational environment, students may, during the course of their studies, actively participate in various other forms of knowledge and skill acquisition, also abroad, that are of great importance for successful later work in the field of law. The participation of student teams at international competitions is one such example that has become a frequent occurrence over the past few years (e.g. in international commercial arbitration (Vienna), human rights law (René Cassin, Strasbourg), international public law (Jessup, Washington), asylum and humanitarian law and EU law (ELMC and Central and East EU Moot)); equally important is the international student exchange in the context of the LLP-Erasmus programme.
